Potato Rosemary Bread
A delightful chewy loaf with subtle flavors of rosemary.  Recipe will yield two loaves, but you can also make some tasty hamburger buns. 1 cup of mashed potatoes.  2 cups of warm water (approximately 100 degrees). Stir the water in with the potatoes until they are kind of slurry. 2 packages or one and 3/4 tablespoons of active dry yeast 3 cups of unbleached flour-bread flour 1 cup of whole wheat flour-stone ground bread flour 3 T of honey 2 tablespoons of olive oil, no need for extra virgin. 1 tablespoon of rosemary ground dried. If you have sprigs or seeds then you should double the amount. Add the dried rosemary to the olive oil first, which will bring out the flavor. 1 T of garlic chopped very fine or granulated.  If you are using powdered garlic, then cut the amount in half. 1 T salt, 2 tsp pepper. Egg wash the top, and bake in a preheated oven of 350 degrees for approximately 45 minutes.    Please subscribe to the podcast and leave a review.   For more information about House of Bread, please visit www.houseofbread.com.

What's it like to go from home baking to commercial baking-interview with McKinney franchisees.
Dustin Marks and Mechelle Coate have recently become empty nesters and have decided the timing was right for them to pursue their long term vision of owning a bread bakery.  While Dustin had no experience, Mechelle was an avid home baker.  I interviewed them just after completing day 3 of commercial baking training.  They were tired, had sore muscles but were smiling!  To connect with them and be invited to their VIP opening, email them at houseofbreadmckinney@gmail.com, visit their web site https://mckinney.houseofbread.com/ social media (1) House of Bread - Mckinney | Facebook House of Bread - McKinney (@houseofbreadmckinney) • Instagram photos and videos.   For more information about House of Bread, please visit www.houseofbread.com.

For our Utube channel, please go here https://m.youtube.com/channel/UCXH5NgT8vpnAuSuZN5AxEQQ Yield about 2 dozen medium sized cookies. . 1 cup unsalted butter, softened not melted1 cup crunchy or smooth peanut butter · 1 cup white sugar · 1 cup packed brown sugar. · 2 eggs · 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour-prefer not a high protein bread flour to get less gluten development. · 1 teaspoon baking powder · ½ teaspoon salt · 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda · Optional 2 tsp of cinnamon. Directions · Step 1 Cream butter, peanut butter, and sugars together in a bowl; beat in eggs. · Step 2 In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; stir into butter mixture. Put dough in refrigerator for 1 hour. Refrigerating the dough before baking will help inhibit spread because the butter is colder, and takes longer to melt. · Step 3 · Roll dough into 1 inch balls and put on baking sheets. Flatten each ball with a fork, making a crisscross pattern. Option to sprinkle the tops with salt or sugar for an extra kick of flavor. Put in indent of a fork then turn sideways and indent again. It is only for looks but marks a traditional peanut butter cookie. Option to make a Peanut butter blossom cookie (peanut butter cookie with Hershey's kiss in center) Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F oven for about 12-16 minutes depending upon your dough ball size. Look for a slightly tan color at the edges. Everyone burns cookies in the bakery. Why because you really have to take them out when they are not fully baked as they continue baking on the sheet. So, when they are close to being fully baked, you really want to check them every minute.  FLOURLESS GF PB COOKIES( 15 cookies) 5 eggs 5 cups of brown sugar Mix at a high speed until the batter thickens up and is fluffy. This is key as if you don’t mix long enough, the cookies will not hold together. Add the below ingredients and mix until combined and creamy 5 Tablespoons of cinnamon 2 Tablespoons of vanilla 1 Tablespoon of salt 5 cups of peanut butter. Using an ice cream scoop or large spoon, put eight dough balls on to a lightly sprayed cookie sheet. Do not flatten the dough now, or will baking as it will spread too much. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, dependent upon your dough ball size. The edges should be slightly firm and the tops should still be soft and doughy. As all cookies, they stiffen up as they cool.

Fruit Pies, a perfect summer treat! Episode 41
SHOW Notes: In this episode, Sheila covers pie baking, with recipes for fruit pies and various topping options.  To purchase the House of Bread recipe book, please visit https://houseofbread.com/recipe-book/ To take an on line class, please visit https://houseofbread.com/product-category/online-baking-class/ If you’d like more information about the franchise opportunity with House of Bread, please visit www.houseofbreadfranchise.com. For our Utube channel, please go here https://m.youtube.com/channel/UCXH5NgT8vpnAuSuZN5AxEQQ. There is a good video on making a lattice top on www.allrecipe.comunder the blueberry pie recipe.  Recipe yields four pie shells. 5 cups of all-purpose flour.  2 Tablespoon of white granulated sugar.  2 tsp of salt.  Mix the sugar, salt and flour BEFORE adding in the butter, which just helps you not over mix the dough and disperses the sugar and salt evenly. 2 cups of COLD butter. Pulse the cold butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse peas.  Once your mixture is crumbly slowly be prepared to add 1 cup of COLD water mix until the dough forms a ball and comes off the sides of the bowl.   It may come into a ball without needing to add the entire amount of water, which is why you want to add slowly. Or you may need to add another Tablespoon or two of water. All environments have different moisture contents and we measure differently.  Take the dough out of the bowl and divide into four.  Refrigerate the dough discs while you work on the filling. 2 Fruit Pies Mix together: 1 1/2 c. sugar 1 c. flour 1 tsp. ground cinnamon 1/2 tsp of salt Mix the above before adding in 8 cups of fruit- blueberries/strawberries/cranberries/apples/rhubarb/peaches/pears, which is 4 cups for each pie.   Place in prepared crust, add 1 Tablespoon of butter for each pie. Either top with another crust, make a lattice top, or add the crumble mixture. Country Topping for two pies: 2 cup of pastry flour 2 cup of oats 2/3 tsp salt 2 cup of brown sugar 2 tsp  powder Cut in 2 cups of COLD butter into pea size shape, can also just use a cheese grater. Mix the ingredients until incorporated and add on top. You want to egg wash the entire pie with just an egg and some water, doesn’t have to be cold water. Lastly, if you do a traditional pie with a full crust on top, you will need some cuts on top in order to release steam. Make your small slits in each quadrant.  Optional after the egg washing to add a little sugar on top, just sprinkle like snow. Regardless of what type of pie you are making, it needs to be on a baking sheet because the filling often spills over and it’s just a mess.  Most pies will take 50-65 minutes at 400 degrees, just check it after 45 minutes and add time as needed.  The crust should be golden and the internal temp is 185 degrees.

Lemon Bread
This loaf has nice blend of sweetness with a hint of sourness. A creamier pound cake with a more complex citrus flavor. 3 ½ cups of flour-pastry or all purpose 2 ¼ cups of white sugar 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 tsp of baking soda 3/4 tsp of baking powder Zest of one lemon. Mix together in a mixing bowl until thoroughly combined. In a separate bowl combine the following ingredients: 4 Eggs 1 cup and 2 T of buttermilk ( this will produce a more moist loaf that just milk). If you don’t have buttermilk, add a T of lemon juice and let sit for 10 minutes) ¾ cup of melted butter 2Tablespoon of lemon juice 1 Tablespoon of lemon extract Combine wets and dries together and fold in one cup of shredded zucchini. Scoop into well-greased baking pans or muffin cups. Fill the pans ¾ full as to allow room to rise during the bake. Bake loaves at 350 degrees for 55-65 minutes. Muffins are smaller and will bake quicker, set the timer for 4O minutes and add time as needed. For more information about House of Bread, please visit www.houseofbread.com.

Artisan Hard Crusted Sourdough
This is a four day process. Day one:  2 cups of sourdough starter, 1 1/3 cups of white bread flour. Pour sourdough starter in a mixing bowl or large bucket. Add 1 cup of flour and mix with yours hands until combined. Continue adding the additional flour to reach the 1 1/3 cups of flour a little at a time until a dough ball forms. The dough should be sticky but still form into a ball. If it is so wet that it is difficult to get the mixture into a ball, add a Tablespoon of flour then continue to mix for couple of minutes. Give the dough a couple of minutes of stirring because it may take time to absorb the water. You really are not kneading the dough, more stirring it in the bowl with your hands because it will be very sticky. The dough should end up smooth and elastic. Put into a container, cover and refrigerate overnight. Day two: Remove starter from fridge and let sit for 4 hours. Add 1 cup of tap water and stir until combined. Add more water, if needed to make a smooth, thick, pourable starter. It looks similar to the regular sourdough starter. Add: 1 tsp yeast 1/3 cup of white bread flour Stir until all ingredients are combined. Cover with towel and let sit on counter overnight. Day three: Mix the following ingredients together in a mixer bowl or you can hand knead the dough too: All the starter from day two 1 cup room temp water 1 tsp salt 3 ½ cups of white bread flour 1 Tablespoon honey Mix on medium speed two for 5-8 minutes. Add more water or flour to reach the correct consistency. Put dough in plastic bucket or container and let proof for 2 hours, then refrigerate overnight. Day four: Take the dough out of fridge and let it sit there for a few hours, to get it closer to room temperature. Divide dough into three pieces and shape into round loaves. Let proof for 2 hours. While proofing, the dough will need to be covered with plastic wrap to prevent the dough from crusting. Egg Wash and just prior to baking, make a cross on top of dough. Bake at 400 degree oven on baking sheets. Spray the oven heavily with a spray bottle or throw a glass of water on the oven shelf to produce steam. Bake until dark golden brown. Time will depend on ovens. Start with 30 minutes and then check every 5 minutes for doneness. Towards the end the bread bakes very quickly and will need to be checked more often.

Buttermilk Bran Muffins, a nutritional powerhouse and they are an incredibly delicious way to start the day!
My go to breakfast at the bakery because they make me feel full longer and I like the tang from the cranberries as well as the buttermilk.  Buttermilk is one of the key ingredients in adding more nutrition, more tang, as well as softening the gluten content with the higher acid base.   This recipe yields six muffin. 1 cup of flour-pastry or all purpose 1 cup of bran 1 cup of whole wheat flour, gold or white wheat if you got it. 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 tsp of baking soda 1 Tablespoon and 1 ½ tsp of baking powder Mix together in a mixing bowl until thoroughly combined. In a separate bowl combine the following ingredients: 2 Eggs  1 cup and 2 T of buttermilk, you need buttermilk to use with the baking soda to leaven the product, If not, then substitute a cup of milk, 1 T and 1 T lemon juice or white vinegeger. LET STAND TEN MINUTES to allow the milk to become curdled.  1/4 cup of melted butter 1/3 cup of honey Combine wets and dries together until incorporated. Do not over mix as you will strengthen the gluten and the muffins will be tough and dense. Fold in ¾ cup of raisins or cranberries.  Then scoop into well-greased muffin tins. The mixture should be less than even with the muffin tins as they will grow in the oven. Everyone loves a nice muffin top but overfilled muffins fuse together and make separation as well as clean up, a nightmare. Bake at 350 degrees and set the timer for 2O minutes and add time as needed. The bran muffins store well frozen. You can also save half the batter and bake off the next day. It holds up way better than the other muffin recipes but there still will be some deflating of the leaving action, so the product is a bit denser to the discerning pallet. Most people will hardly know the difference. So, if you have time constraints and want to make this batter in advance, then you certainly can without same degree of compromise in flavor/taste as you would get with let’s say my blueberry muffin recipe.

Easter Bread, Pane di Pasqua.
Easter Bread about 2/3 dough and one Easter Doll. Start by getting your eggs colored · 2 T white vinegar · Liquid food coloring, your choice of colors I like pink, light greens, light purple, light green-the softer colors of Easter. · 3 cups boiling water · 6 raw eggs left in shell. Another thing you can do, is put the raw eggs in a muffin tin and bake them and you’ll have hard baked eggs, same thing, then pop them in water that doesn’t have to boil. That way you can more easily do multiple colors. Dough:  1 1/2 cups of water. 1 cup of milk. Add together and heat up to warm, but not burning hot. 2 packages or one and 3/4 Tablespoons of active dry yeast.  6 cups of unbleached bread flour.  2 cups of whole-wheat flour. I prefer stone ground white whole wheat flour. 1/2 cup of butter that is very soft but not melted. 1/3 cup of granulated sugar 1/3 cup of honey.  1 1/2 Tablespoons of salt.  2 large eggs  1 lemon zested, and then add the juice to the mix. Egg wash and bake for 40 minutes, check to see if done and continue baking until temp reaches 181.    Happy Easter Baking! Please subscribe and share this podcast with another bread head.

Hot Cross Buns, celebrate Good Friday with a little sweet and a bit of spice-all deliciously rolled up.
The traditional Hot Cross bun goes way back in history to the start of the AD period.  Sheila gives you the House of Bread traditional recipe and some suggestions for creating your own tradition. Hot Cross buns have more butter and more eggs, than traditional dinner rolls that produces a slightly denser roll (but not heavy!). These are more of a dessert/breakfast roll but they are not that sweet as an option to serve with dinner.  Recipe Yields 2 1/2 pounds of dough or roughly 12-16 hot cross buns, depending upon the size you want your bun) ½ cup of water ½ cup of milk Heat the water and the milk together in the microwave until it is very warm but not burning hot. It should feel like warm bath water. 2 packages or one and 3/4 tablespoons of active dry yeast 1/2 cup of white sugar 1 lemon zested and juiced. Zest the entire outside of the lemon and the squeeze the juice into the bowl. 2 T of melted butter 1 egg ½ teaspoon of cinnamon Pinch of nutmeg and all spice (about ¼ teaspoon, and if you don’t have one or the other just use one kind). Optional: ½ tsp of cardamom or 1/2 tsp of ginger. 1 T of salt Stir all the ingredients together before adding the flour in order to evenly distribute the flavors. 4 cups of unbleached flour (bread flour, high protein) Add at the end of the kneading when you have the good dough stage: 1 cup of raisins. Note: On the raisins, if you want to substitute currants, or golden raisins, dried cranberries, dried cherries do so to your taste but no more than one cup total. FROSTING: 1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar, tsp vanilla or almond extract then add milk until you get a thick pancake batter type consistency.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20-30 minutes.   Happy Baking, and Happy Easter everyone!  Thanks for listening.  Please subscribe and share this podcast with another bread head.

Irish Soda Bread, bring a little luck to the table.
The luck of the Irish, wasn't about their cuisine but rather the propensity for miners of Irish decent during the gold rush to strike it rich.  At House of Bread, we added our "lucky" ingredients to Irish Soda Bread to make one feel lucky to enjoy.   Traditional Irish Soda Bread is made with flour, baking soda, soured milk, and salt-that's edible but just doesn't taste very good.   At House of Bread, we took tradition and added, butter, buttermilk, raisins, caraway seeds for a full bounty of delicious flavor.    This recipe will yield two loaves. 2 ½ cups of white all purpose or pastry flour (can use gold whole wheat for Irish Brown Soda Bread) 3 Tablespoons of granulated sugar 1 tsp of baking soda 1 tsp of baking powder 1 tsp of salt 1 tsp of caraway seeds (optional) Measure out dry ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix them thoroughly together. ¼ cup of cold butter Cube butter into small pieces and cut into dry ingredients with fingertips until it resembles pea size crumbles. Add in raisins and mix together: 1/2 cup of golden raisins (may substitute regular raisins or currants) In large pitcher or use well method. 1 cup of buttermilk. Can not substitute milk, well you can but you have to add a T lemon juice. The acid found in buttermilk reacts to bases — most commonly baking soda — creating carbon dioxide gas.  2 eggs Whisk the egg/buttermilk together and then add in your dry ingredients. Using your hands, mix until flour holds together like a biscuit or scone dough, not a cookie dough. Cut dough into two equal parts.  Place on well sprayed cookie sheet and cut a cross shape on top. Egg wash the top, by scrambling one egg and brushing it on top. Bake for approximately 30-35 minutes at 350 degree oven. Happy Baking everyone!  If you wish to learn more about the scone method of baking that is used to make Irish Soda Bread, then here is a link to the muffin/scone baking class.  Baking Class – Quick Breads, Muffins and Scones – House of Bread    For more information about House of Bread, please visit www.houseofbread.com.

King's Cake with versions for Mardi Gras or Three King's Day-that are fit for a king! Season two, episode one.
A delicious sweet yeasted dough, topped to make a dessert tray the life of the party-complete with a baby inside.   While the base of the King's Cake is the same, Sheila explores the different decorating techniques for each holiday.    There are also some tips included in our YouTube channel.   Please feel free to share this episode with other purple/green/gold party revelers.    We use a pastry style sweet dough, which is rich and dense. Not really cake like more bread like in texture. ½ cup of honey 3 cups of white flour bread flour 1 cup of whole wheat flour bread flour 1Tablespoon of salt 1 Tablespoon of vanilla 2 Eggs ¼ cup of butter softened 2 packages of yeast or 1 ¾ Tablespoon of dried yeast. 1 ½ cups of milk warmed Make the dough into a long rope like shape much like you would for a baguette. Flatten out the roll, and put brown sugar and a cinnamon mixture in the middle. 1 cup of brown sugar 1 Tablespoon of cinnamon For the Three King’s Day, we will egg wash and then lightly sprinkle additional cinnamon and sugar on the rounded loaf.  For the Three King’s loaf, we decorate with dried fruit and then bake the loaf.    We don’t frost the loaves either after coming out of the oven. For King Cakes, we frost than add the colored sugars of yellow, purple and green. The colors signify yellow/gold for power, green for justice and purple for faith.  Bake for approximately 30-35 minutes until the bread reaches 180 degrees. For King's Cake, paint on a layer of powdered sugar/vanilla and water. 1 cup of powdered sugar, 1 Tablespoon of vanilla Add a tablespoon of water at a time to get a runny pancake batter consistency. Sprinkle each segment liberally with yellow, green and then purple sugars. You alternate each color.   For more information about House of Bread, please visit www.houseofbread.com.

Country Apple Mix: 5 cups sliced apples, well drained if you are using canned apples. 1 Tbsp lemon juice 1 cup brown sugar, packed. 2 tsp cinnamon 2 Tbsp flour, pastry, all purpose or cake flour preferred but again not a big deal if all you have is bread flour 1 tsp nutmeg Place in pie shell, Country Apple Topping: 1 cup of pastry flour 1 cup of oats 1/3 tsp salt 1 cup of brown sugar 1 tsp cinnamon 1 ½ tsp of baking powder Cut in COLD butter into pea size shape, can also just use a cheese grater. Mix the ingredients until incorporated and add on top. Pumpkin Pie Mix in a bowl 2 eggs and 1½ cups milk, can be whole or skim. Can also substitute nut milks. Add in 15 oz. of pumpkin puree. Note, not pumpkin pie filling that may come in a can. You can also make your own pumpkin, which I discussed in my pumpkin bread podcast. Mix thoroughly the ingredients, and then in a separate container mix the following: ½ cup white sugar, ½ tsp. salt, 1 tsp ginger, ½ tsp. nutmeg, ½ tsp cinnamon. Then combine the ingredients. Pour into the pie shells.
